2003 Bentley Continental R

Submitted by on December 15, 2013 – 1:02 amNo Comment

2003 Bentley Continental RThe well-proven 6.75 L Garrett-turbocharged engine from the Bentley Turbo R was chosen. Power output of 325 hp (242 kW) and torque of 450 ft·lbf (610 N·m) was estimated, as Rolls continued to refuse to supply official figures. Other sources estimate as high as 400 hp (298 kW) and 590 ft·lbf (800 N·m).

The car used the new 4-speed GM 4L80-E automatic transmission and stopped with ventilated disc brakes front and plain discs at the rear. Top speed was 145 mph (233 km/h), and Rolls estimated a 6.6 second sprint to 60 mph (97 km/h). The R was priced at US$271,780 in 1992.

The Continental S was a limited-edition performance model made in 1994 and 1995 with an intercooler added. This pushed power output up, and after the 18 S models were finished was applied to the regular Continental R as well.

The opportunity for customizing the specification was offered again from March 1999 with the Continental R Mulliner model range, introduced at the Geneva Motor Show to cater for an unusual requirements. A Bentley customer could specify his car in direct contact with engineers and designers at the Crewe factory. The Bentley Continental R Mulliner was equipped with the most powerful engine as hitherto only found on the Bentley Continental T. A power output of 420 hp (313 kW) and a maximum torque of 650 ft·lbf (881 N·m) was more than any other manufacturer in the world could offer. The car could be pushed up to a top speed of some 170 mph (274 km/h).
